Mini chalk boards made out of magnetic vinyl boards

Ever get these free vinyl refrigerator magnets from local businesses; many are calendars or the business logo with their information. What to do with these items when the 1 year calendar is expired; reuse these magnets by painting the fronts of these vinyl magnets with black chalk board paint. Paint one coat, then let it dry, then another coat of paint; this will create a mini chalkboard for the refrigerator. Be creative and add embellishments around the chalkboard with colored duct tape, or small rhinestones, or old jewelry pieces. These pieces will create one of a kind unique mini chalkboards for the fridge or any other magnetic surface and keep these items out of the land fills.
